  • Description

    Get an up-to-date, comprehensive introduction to fire alarm circuits, fire alarm power circuits and pathways, plus NFPA 72® and NEC® requirements.

    A key component of the 2019 edition of NFPA 72®, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code®, Fire Alarm Circuits and Pathways covers the various types of circuits used for fire detection and alarm systems. Working online at your own pace, you'll learn about the three basic fire alarm circuits used to connect initiating devices and notification appliances to fire alarm control units, and those used to interconnect different control units in the same system.

    Curriculum based on the latest NFPA 72 also covers control circuits that are used to trigger other emergency control functions. Training addresses fire alarm power circuits and pathways, which can provide power to certain types of detectors, notification appliances, relays, or other devices. This includes coverage of the new circuit designation called Class N pathways, permitting the use of networks and Ethernet when interconnecting a fire alarm system.

    A key characteristic of fire alarm power circuits is that the power is derived from the fire alarm system itself. For this reason, fire alarm power circuits are covered by the same section of NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), governing basic fire alarm circuits. Circuits that provide primary AC power are not considered fire alarm power circuits.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • Identify the basic types of circuits
    • Recognize how different circuit types operate under various conditions
    • Identify the characteristics of Class A, B, C, D, E, N, and X circuits.
    • Recognize how layout and installation factors affect circuit performance
    • Identify the circuit survivability levels


    Who Will Benefit:
    Anyone whose job involves designing, reviewing, evaluating or installing fire alarm systems, including:
    designers, installers, electrical contractors, architects, auditors, and project managers.

    Continuing Education Credit:
    Complete this course and qualify for 0.15 CEU.
    Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be prompted to download the CEU certificate directly from the course site.
